Yes, that's the new skin knitting together.

Unless it gets hot or starts oozing it's fine.

Ah it might be a bit infected in that case - do you feel unwell? Flu like symptoms? If not it's probably mild and can be safely ignored, but if you notice veins tracking (like red lines) from the wound outwards) see your GP.
